    You can do a silicone lifecast and pour up tinted flexible polyurethane foam in it. Materials for both are available from Smooth-On. Body Double Silk lifecast with plaster bandage jacket, and flex-foam-it 6 or higher for the casting. They have urethane pigments you can use, as well. You'll find info on their website about the process.

But if someone wanted to buy it, I'll have no problem selling it after I get my pictures!

    Thanks for the feedback, everyone. Much appreciated. Not much progress lately, but a friend of mine loaned me a really nice copy of a VP lifecast (the one Drzeus has). I think it 's about 10 years younger than the late 1950's Vincent that I'm sculpting, but it gives a good reference for the landmarks and dimensions on his face. I was actually surprised how close I was on the overall proportions. Most of the areas that are off are pretty much what I expected to find. It'll be an...

    Cheapest would probably be to hack either the buttons on remote control or buttons on the DVD player. Hi Rez Designs has a really nice digital media player device that is capable of triggering video and works really well.
